This deeply saturated, high viscosity sweet stout is the best in its class. Pours a thick black tar with a rich, sweet, sliky texture upfront. What I really like about it is the hopsy character that comes forth on the finish. The hops try to hang on as the nectar goes down creating this complex texture shift from silky smooth to velvet. I can honestly say I have never experienced such a shift in any other brew. Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommended.

it is a damn good thing! very fine aroma, something between cofee-fruity and red dessert wine, pretty special! beautiful, balanced flavor, bitterish and sourish with fruit tones, it is like a sip of good cofee, rich aftertaste! my opinion is strongly recomended to try!

Medium brown head. Clear black colour. Roasty and creamy chocolate aroma with whiskey. Likewise creamy taste. The chocolate notes reappear in the palate. Great beer!

500 ml bottle. Pours clear very dark brown, almost black, with a medium brown head. Roasty spirit aroma with chocolate notes. Rich fruity roasty malty sweet sour with a slightly bitter buzzy chocholate palate. Wonderful!

Totally love this beer. The greatest thing about stouts in my opinion is the fact that you can take a small sip of one and the taste will stay in your mouth for a long time. This stout is no exception. To this day it has to be one of the greatest stouts (if not the best) I have ever had the opportunity to drink.

D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S. Pours black from the bottle (which looks great). No head. Smells of chocolate. Heavy malts. Long finish. Magnificent!!!

Sil y a un Stout qui est bon, cest bien celui l ! Verse noire, presque huileuse, mousse beige, fine et qui se disperse en petits nuages... Un beau Stout en somme. Le nez est magnifique : chocolat au lait, caf, caramel, miel de fleurs, pain dpices, cassonade, rglisse, confiture de fraise, de figue, de cassis, de myrtille, crme de marron, bois de cdre, malt whisky, noisette et noix... Cest riche, capiteux, gourmand souhait ! Bien cach derrire, des notes de citron vert et de zest dorange... Superbe ! En bouche, une merveille galement. Texture souple, ronde souhait, crmeuse et paisse, amertume du malt et des houblons bien dose, bien linaire, alcool trs puissant, au four et au moulin avec son "petit" 6.5%, levures propres, fermes et nettes et carbonatation assez faible propre aux Stouts. On retrouve tout le charme du nez : les armes et saveurs de malts chocolat et malts noirs, le rglisse, le bois de rsineux, le cacao amer, le caf serr. La longueur est excellente bien entendu, sur les notes de cacao, de caf et de noix, avec une petite astringence au palet en plus de lamertume. Vraiment un superbe Stout qui a tout bon sur toute la ligne. Reste quil ny a pas le petit truc magique qui me fait vibrer, mais on nest pas loin du sommet ! Un must dans le style !

This was a fantastic rich creamy milk stout. The appearance and smell are beautiful but the real synching point of the beer was how remarkably smooth and creamy the silky body just flowed through your palate. Appearance: Black with a frothy head. Smell: I could smell the whole cream malt balls aroma coming up through the roasty, chocolaty body. Fantastic! Taste & mouthfeel: Mocha Chocolaty, super smooth with a silky cream like taste and texture that is truly exceptional. Drinkability: This beer is absolutely as drinkable as the style can be! Hope this is helpful. Cheers!
